WATCH: AOC holds first town hall since start of ‘go back’ controversy with Trump – Washington Examiner

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is holding a town hall event on immigration in New York.

It is her first town hall since President Trump created a whirlwind of backlash last weekend when he told four Democratic congresswomen of color, including Ocasio-Cortez, they should “go back” to their home countries if they are unhappy with the status of the United States, though only one of the women was born outside the U.S.

On Wednesday, a crowd at his campaign rally in North Carolina chanted “send her back” after he criticized Rep. Ilhan Omar, a Somali-born American citizen from Minnesota.

Ocasio-Cortez has been highly critical of the Trump administration’s treatment of migrants, comparing detention facilities to concentration camps.
